Manchester United’s line up against Manchester City for today’s derby has been announced.
Confirmed XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Williams, Matic, Fred, Fernandes, James, Martial
Substitutes: Romero, Bailly, Tuanzebe, Mata, McTominay, Greenwood, Ighalo
Kevin de Bruyne misses out for City, failing to make their bench due to injury.
United’s home record against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City has been terrible since the Spaniard took over at The Etihad.
The only game we have won has been a EFL Cup tie against a weakened City under Jose Mourinho.
We have a good chance to put that right today, and have beaten City twice away this season.
A win would go a long way to propelling our charge for a Champions League place and keeping the feelgood factor at United going, amid a strong run of form.
